When former captain Smith joined Warner at the crease after just third ball of the match, it was first batting partnership on home soil since their ball-tampering suspensions. Their partnership helped Australia to a series-sealing nine-wicket victory over Sri Lanka in Brisbane on Wednesday.
The pair’s unbeaten 117-run stand crushed Sri Lanka’s total of 117 in 13 overs in Brisbane iconic cricket ground GABBA.
Aaron Finch’s side had crushed Sri Lanka by 134 runs in Adelaide’s Twenty20 International series opener on Sunday, with the Gabba victory in front of just 11,986 fans rendering Friday’s final clash in Melbourne a dead rubber.
Considering Pakistan’s inexperience team playing first T20 on Sunday one can expect the same results, the current form of Australian team has raised the Alarm bell in Pakistani camp. Australian T20 team is in good form and have been playing excellent cricket as compete to Pakistan. In last two matches of T20 with Siri Lanka, fans turn out have been very low, due to performance of Sri Lank which hardly giving an tough time to Australia.
If Pakistan challenges Australia and competition gets tougher then it may attract some more fans.
